The series shifts to a new arena, but the Boston Bruins will hope for the same results they earned in Games 1 and 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Carolina Hurricanes. Game 3 is set to be a battle.
How to Live Stream Bruins-Hurricanes Game 3
Tonight's action will start at 8 p.m. ET from PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C. Fans can watch the game on NBCSN, or through streams on Reddit's NHL streams subreddit.
Unlike some Boston teams of the past that relied on defense and goaltending, this year's Bruins are red hot offensively, having scored at least four goals in four of their last five games. And they have been extra lethal against the 'Canes.
Four third period goals by Boston allowed the home team to take care of Game 1, 5-2. Each goal was scored by a different player.
Game 2 was even more of an offensive onslaught, as the Bruins took a six-goal lead in the third period on their way to a 6-2 win. Matt Grzelcyk scored twice in the win, and Charlie Coyle and Torey Krug both recording three assists.
However, the series remains far from over, as Carolina proved in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Washington Capitals they can never be counted out. Down 2-0 to the defending Stanley Cup champions, many wrote off Carolina. Next thing we knew, they had just won Game 7 in the series. They would then go onto sweep the New York Islanders in the Conference semifinals.
The teams will play Game 4 this Thursday, May 16. From here on out, as long as the series continues, games will be played every two days, with no additional time off provided other than the mandated single rest day.
